An evil burden

Chapter TAA-HAASurah – 20)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


مَّنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْهُ فَإِنَّهُۥ يَحْمِلُ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ وِزْرًا 100

 خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهِ وَسَآءَ لَهُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ حِمْلًا 101

 يَوْمَ يُنفَخُ فِى ٱلصُّورِ وَنَحْشُرُٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ يَوْمَئِذٍ زُرْقًا 102


100.  Whoso turneth away from it, he verily will bear a burden on the Day of Resurrection –


101.  Abiding under it for ever – an evil burden for them on the Day of Resurrection –


102.  The Day when the Trumpet is blown. On that Day We assemble the guilty blue-eyed (with terror) –

100.  Man  ‘a’-raza  ‘anhu  fa-‘innahuu  yahmilu  Yawmal-Qiyaamati    wizraa.


101.  Khaalidiina  fiih.  Wa  saaa-‘a  lahum  Yawmal-Qiyaa-mati  himlaa.


102.  Yawma  yunfakhu  fis-Suuri  wa  Nah-shurul-mujrimiina  Yawma-‘izin-  zurqaa.




Zurqun  – {blue-eyed (persons)}, this word is plural of ‘azraqun, which is an adjective from zarqun. Zarqun means “to become blue”. ‘Azraqun means “the person whose eyes are blue”. Blue eyes make the face ugly, also frightful.


It is commanded: The person, who will revolt from Holy Qur’an in the world; will not accept its advice; will not learn a lesson from the admonitory circumstances of old nations mentioned in it and will not change his life according to its commandments; but by turning away from it; he will be involved in fulfilling own lustful desires, he will bear a heavy burden of his evil deeds on the Day of Resurrection. Such kind of people will remain suppressed for ever under such burden. This burden will be established worst for them, and they will be suffering from such distress that they will be greatly worried, but they will never be released from it.


The Day of Resurrection will be such Day on which the Trumpet will be blown and by its sound, dead bodies of the entire mankind will get up. Then Allaah Almighty will assemble the wrongdoers at one place. Their faces will become black due to terror and eyes will become blue, which is a sign of deadly fear.
